The New York Knicks have scheduled a news conference for Tuesday morning, amid reports that Derek Fisher has agreed to become the team’s new coach. The Knicks did not confirm the reports, other than saying they were planning a “major announcement.”
“Coaching allows for you to positively impact other people’s lives,” Fisher told reporters during his exit interview after Oklahoma City’s season ended. “To help a group of people find success, whether they have or haven’t before, you’re all working together for a common goal.”
Several media outlets cited unnamed sources saying the longtime NBA guard agreed to terms with the Knicks on a deal that was still being finalized.
